My week began beautifully after a great sunny weekend. Yet, the unexpected curves in the road sometimes bring you right up to a challenge or obstacle before you have time to think. For me it was having my laptop literally yanked from my lap and hands as I was sitting enjoying the sun and working on an email. The attack wasn't expected of course and it leaves you feeling pretty low. I was not hurt and though it made some problems for me at work, the computer is less important than my well being. With that said, I stayed home from work and began regrouping with some art work. I woke up and decided that I needed to be creative and get myself back to a centered way of looking at life and move forward, so I started working on valentine gifties for my colleagues and I also worked in my art journal. I cooked food from scratch and played with the cat. No pics yet, but I hope to have some to post tomorrow if not Saturday. There is a quote - which I can't remember who said it and the exact wording but it goes like this:
Forgive but don't forget. If one forgets, one loses the lesson. The lesson: being more aware of my surroundings. Also, from adversity there comes a strengthening of the fibers and forgiving prevents me from stewing as I am sure they (my band of terrorists - there were 8 to 10 of them ) think I am doing. I won't let them still my Joy. Cheers.
